    Default Thank you Dean Lombardi...

    ...for trading Colin Miller and Martin Jones away to bring in Milan Lucic...for all the trades good and bad, and all the signings good and bad that move right there has to among the worst, if not the worst, of all the moves you ever penned or even thought about no less actually executed...Thank God you happened to put together lightning in a bottle twice and bring us 2 cups (which I am glad I got to see, thinking I never would) but my goodness could that trade continue to look any worse, it gets worse by the minute. The other trades and signings and all the other crap at least the result was 2 cups. The Miller/Jones for Lucic after the window had shut was just plain stupid, like really dumb

    Since that trade, Boston = Great; Sharks = pretty good; Kings = WTF? Is this the black hole again?

    DL, The Legend Continues!

    We all know that was a desperate Band-Aid move to save his job. A short-sighted plan always comes back to bite you in the ass.

    Definitely one of the worst trades in Kings history but hey, we'll always have 2012 and 2014. So thanks Dean!

    Now don't get me wrong, the Kings team we have now is unacceptable but I still thank Dean for what he did before he was on his way out.

    Soooo... you'da kept Martin Jones and traded Quick?

    Because only one of them could be the starter for the Kings.

    Or the Kings could have traded him to San Jose for a first, kept their own, and had one of Miller or McNabb.

    Even if Jones walked, it would have been better than trading for Lucic.

    It was one of Lombardi's worst decisions. He married himself to players he hadn't even acquired yet.

    At that m Moment Lombardi was so sold on lucic that he would have traded his own mother along with the deal.

    The Lucic deal was one of many horrible things Deano did to screw the Kings for years.

    His multiple bad contracts that he handed out from Brown, Kopi, Gabo, (hopefully in the long run, not Quick)......not getting rid of Richards earlier when he had the chance....lost the Kings a season plus tying up the coin while Richards was in limbo.....Keeping Sutter on for two seasons too long......dealing away top draft picks galore for little to nothing in return......on and on and on.

    ...but hey, we got 2 Cups.

    The price for those two glorious Cup runs: years and years of mediocrity.

    If Blake, (like Luc) is an AEG "yes" man, this is only going to get uglier.

    Dean did a great job of building a team for "the now". His sweetheart deals and trades affecting the long term are going to put us in a bad spot for a while.

    Dean had a plan...it worked.
    He was loyal to a fault.

    Jettisoning Richards was difficult for him. That whole drug thing was tough for him to to get a handle on...but he shoulda cut him.
    I believe him trading for Lucic was his way of bringing in a "dick" sorta speak - but after 60 games..Lucic coasted the rest of the way.

    Losing Marty Jones was tough but eff the B's for sending him to SJ.
    Teams fade away (see Chicago) after years of glory.

    Kings had a tremendous 3 year run in 2012-13-14. Injuries and age have crept in.
    Quick has been playoff ready...can't say that about 4-5 other guys...

    Dean's bold moves outweigh his crap moves...
